A Closer Look

Poverty in England: An interactive map

Want to see how poverty looks like relative to other districts ?

The Gaurdian : Credit reference company Experian, besides supplying information to credit cards companies and banks, also provides data for the public sector – and has given us this data.

It ranks every English local authority by a set of key poverty indicators…

Where do they get the facts from? Experian says:

The majority of indices are derived from our proprietary sources and our own modelled work. A key input for most of the indicators is Mosaic Public Sector, a version of Experian’s consumer classification but designed specifically for use by Public Sector organisations. Mosaic contains over 400 data variables. Two thirds of the indicators use the linkage between Mosaic Public Sector and external data to derive a baseline to create a specific indicator of poverty. The other third are based upon either Experian proprietary consumer marketing data, or modelling of publically available data such as the Index of Multiple DeprivationHMRC data on Child Poverty and Claimant Count data from NOMIS (unemployment).
